New Study: Quality of Sperm Declines with Advancing Age

A new study published by National Academy of Sciences of the USA has concluded that the genetic quality of men's sperm decreases with advancing age, raising the risk of dwarfism and reducing the chances of a normal pregnancy. My immediate reaction was at what age does the average sperm bank stop using existing donors and not taking on new donors.

For years people have been claiming that a man's sperm was always the same as opposed the quantity and quality of a woman's eggs as the woman ages. The results of this study should come as no surprise as any other conclusion never made any sense.

The entire article published by Bloomberg can be found on this blog's Annex.
